Fender Custom Shop 2017 Limited NAMM '51 Nocaster Heavy Relic

Fender Custom Shop
Product Overview

The Fender Custom Shop do some pretty special things, and with the Custom Shop 2017 '51 Heavy Relic Nocaster they hark right back to the early days of Leo Fenders vision. Specially commissioned for NAMM 2017, it's a real beauty!

With the appearance of a vintage guitar, this Custom Shop model benefits from all the playability and reliability of a brand new one. A lightweight Ash body is finished in a classic Faded Nocaster Blonde nitrocellulose lacquer, period correct, this finish will wear beautifully with time and develop its own character even further. It also allows the natural resonance of the body to sing and sustain much more effectively compared with other finishes. The Heavy Relic finish gives a truly authentic vintage appearance and is meticulously applied.

A Custom Maple neck is also finished in nitro lacquer for a smooth, vintage feel. With a 9.50" radius and Sanko 6105 frets, the '51 Nocaster features a Nocaster 'U' profile, it feels comfortable and robust, just like a vintage Fender should.

With the Telecaster design considered by many to be the original workhorse guitar, the Custom Shop '51 Nocaster needs a pickup pairing that can deliver the classic Tele' twang. Loaded with a pair of hand wound Fender pups, you certainly get that famous Tele' tone. A Texas Special at the neck gives you slick, precise mid to highs while the '51 Nocaster at the bridge delivers great dynamic range and a warm, beautifully rounded tone. It's a versatile and well balanced selection.

The original '51 Nocaster's are the stuff of legend, a real collector's piece. The Fender Custom Shop 2017 NAMM '51 Nocaster, well that's a player's guitar!
